In the 1960's & 1970's, Smith & Wesson manufactured a model of handcuffs (Model 95) exclusively for the military.
These handcuffs were only marked on the front of the right-hand cuff with the S&W Logo. No other stampings i.e. S&W address or serial numbers are on these cuffs.
They did not come in the regular S&W blue handcuff box, but in a plain brown box, with military Defense Supply Agency identification numbers.
These were manufactured during the Vietnam War Era. The 3 boxes I have are Nov. 1963 (end label, top), March 1970 (printed top of box, left) & August 1972 (printed top of box, right).
